She chatted with the Rev. Thomas Rosica on Salt + Light’s program Witnessrecently and shared some of her insights into the subject of deacons in general and women deacons in particular:
Zagano appeared in a June 18 episode of Salt+Light’s ongoing “Witness” series to discuss the origins of women deacons in the Catholic Church and referred to the story of Phoebe delivering Paul’s letter to the Romans. In Romans 16:1, Paul calls Phoebe a deacon of the church in Cenchreae, a village in the ancient Greek municipality of Corinth. Zagano also discussed roles women deacons have had in Catholic Church history, including, but not limited to, ministering to the poor and to women. “In no ancient culture would a man be ministering alone to a woman,” Zagano told Basilian Fr. Thomas Rosica, CEO of Salt + Light, during the interview.
She also made an appearance on the Salt + Light program Subject Matters to discuss her writing on the subject. You can watch that interview below.
